‘As triplets it’s impossible to date as men compare us and make uncomfortable assumption’

Elise, Sherena and Kayley, 18, are making a name for themselves on TikTok – but in their private lives they have to put up with difficult comments from people

The triplets are often mistaken for each other and have trouble finding love

Three identical triplets have said it’s impossible to find love because boys on nights out compare them to decide which one is “prettiest.”

Sherena, Kayley and Elise Terry, 18, from Gravesend in Kent, claim sometimes boys even try to chat up all three sisters to “improve their chances.”

The sisters, who are incredibly close, say they wouldn’t change being triplets – but the daily comments about which of them is “prettier” or “skinnier” can wear them down a bit.

Sherena, who is in a relationship, said: “It’s normally boys that compare us in comments on TikTok, saying which one they think is prettier or skinner and sometimes it can be girls as well but it’s always about our looks.

“It’s not nice to hear and we just think it’s a bit weird that people feel the need to write that kind of stuff.

“It makes it harder to find love because boys find it a bit weird that they’d have a girlfriend that has two sisters that look just like her, it definitely puts them off.”

Some people have even suggested to Sherena that her boyfriend “must fancy” her sisters because they look the same.

But Sherena and her sisters do their best to brush off the nasty jibes.

“We understand why people think it but we are our own people and it’s just a bit uncomfortable,” she said.





Elise added: “Boys will try and message all of us at the same time to increase their chances of getting a date, which is very annoying.

“We tell each other straight away if a boy has messaged us so if it ever happens we just don’t reply. We don’t have the same type anyway so we’ve never fought over a boy.”

The girls’ parents Lisa Terry, 49, and Paul Terry, 47, initially thought they were just having one baby when Lisa fell pregnant for the first time,

But the 12-week scan left them open-mouthed with shock when they realised they weren’t just having one, but two extra babies.

Throughout their lives the girls have been confused for one another – especially at school when they wore matching uniforms.

But they’re embracing their similarities by pursuing a career in social media, and they’ve picked up a large following.

The girls play around with their followers by switching places in photos to see if fans notice which triplet is which.

Although they say they have a “natural” similarity in terms of fashion sense and routinely swap clothes, they’re trying to develop their own styles to show people they have their own individual identities.

Elise said: “Our nans, grandads, aunties and uncles used to get us mixed up a lot because our mum would dress us in the same clothes when we were little and they still do get us mixed up sometimes.

“People who don’t know us that well can never tell us apart. We understand why people get us confused but it can get a bit annoying and repetitive sometimes.”

Kayley added: “We share clothes and makeup because we’re the same size and like a lot of the same stuff but we do have our own styles as well which make us quite different.

“I think liking a lot of the same things comes naturally with being triplets.”

She added that, although they enjoy making TikTok videos, it can be tiring when people leave comments like: “The one in the middle is prettier.”




The inseparable trio love being identical triplets, but they’re planning on moving out to their own places so they can get more independence.

Elise said: “We’d definitely like to still be close when we move out. We’ve said we could live in the same building but different apartments and that way we’re still close but have our own places.

“When we do eventually move out it will be quite weird after being so used to always being together so we will have to get used to it.”
